Many manufacturers – for example OnePlus or Samsung – have integrated this feature into several of their smartphones. But how does the reverse charging mode work? I'll show you, it's very simple!
Reverse wireless charging: How does it work?
There are essentially two ways to charge your smartphone: by cable or wireless. The latter method specifically allows the transfer of energy to the receiving device by electromagnetic induction. More and more smartphones offer reverse wireless charging, which allows them to be transformed into a wireless powerbank-style charging station, so they can be used to charge other devices, but without cables.
Not all new smartphones are equipped with reverse wireless charging. The main flagships released this year though are usually equipped with it – but not the iPhones. This feature is integrated in the Samsung Galaxy S22 and OnePlus 10 Pro for example.
Here, we made this tutorial on the OnePlus 10 Pro under OxygenOs 12. The steps are similar on MIUI 13 and OneUI 4, but the settings interface will be somewhat different. As initially mentioned, Samsung calls this feature Wireless Powershare.
How to enable or disable reverse wireless charging on your smartphone?
- To enable reverse charging go to the settings of your smartphone
- Go to battery and click on reverse wireless charging
- In this menu, you can enable or disable the reverse wireless charging
- You can now place your device to charge on the back of your smartphone
